There is a national push to support increasing pretrial release rates, and a fair amount of research and data that backs up the need to increase release rates. Federal Defender Terry Ward and Chief USPO Warren Maxwell will present these sessions with participation of additional members of the USPO. Federal Defender Ward recently presented similar material at two meetings of pretrial officers from every district in the country.
In an effort to maximize your ability to attend we have scheduled two sessions. There is no need to attend both since they will be identical.
The first will take place in the Hartford Court’s jury assembly room on the second floor of the courthouse at 450 Main Street, Hartford from 2:30 to 4:30 PM on Monday, November 19, 2018.
The second will take place in the New Haven Court’s jury assembly room on the first floor of the New Haven courthouse at 141 Church Street, New Haven from 3:00 -5:00 PM on Monday, December 10, 2018.
Background materials will be available for download on this website shortly. No registration for the sessions is required. Participants who attend the full session can receive 2 hours of CLE credits.
